In 1983, Bill Bain asked Mitt Romney to launch Bain Capital, a private equity offshoot of the successful consulting firm Bain & Company. After some initial reluctance, Romney agreed. The new job came with a stipulation: Romney couldn't raise money from any current clients, Bain said, because if the private equity venture failed, he didn't want it taking the consulting firm down with it.
When Romney struggled to raise funds from other traditional sources, he and his partners started thinking outside the box. Bain executive Harry Strachan suggested that Romney meet with a group of Central American oligarchs who were looking for new investment vehicles as turmoil engulfed their region.
Romney was worried that the oligarchs might be tied to "illegal drug money, right-wing death squads, or left-wing terrorism," Strachan later told a Boston Globe reporter, as quoted in the 2012 book "The Real Romney." But, pressed for capital, Romney pushed his concerns aside and flew to Miami in mid-1984 to meet with the Salvadorans at a local bank.
It was a lucrative trip. The Central Americans provided roughly $9 million -- 40 percent -- of Bain Capital's initial outside funding, the Los Angeles Times reported recently. And they became valued clients.

Yes, apparently Mitt Romney is a Satanic baby eater as well.
We are so lucky to have an unbiased poster such as yourself informing us of these important facts.

It's not likely Romney can dodge this one...he personally met with these people. He was personally funded by mass murderers...he made his fortune off of money from people who were responsible for killing hundreds of people.
But for some reason...I'm think some people are going to think that this isn't a big deal...I'm sure they will say this is "just a distraction"...and then ask to see Obama's college transcripts

Since Jonathon Lavine is one of OBamas top bundlers from Bain that must mean Obama is tied to Death squads.
Yep Yep .
Since Columbia and Princeton both received funds from Bain that must mean they are tied to Death Squads
Since Harvard received Bain funds that must be tied to death squads.

1.) Did Romney know about the death squads?
2.) With all the links in The Huffington Post story, why, when he said that the Romney campaign had responded to the issue in an article which the Post had, did he not post a link to the article? Didn't want the other side to be heard?
